New vs. Used: Why Buy New with Boone Homes?

October 10, 2022

For over 30 years, Boone Homes has been building top-quality new-construction homes in astounding communities throughout the Richmond area—and through our extensive experience in the homebuilding industry, we understand that buying new can sometimes sound intimidating to potential buyers. Many turn to used homes due to common misconceptions and stigmas around buying new, and although the previously-owned housing market may appear as the better deal on the surface level—the advantages of new home buying heavily outweigh any other options in the industry. To guide your decision in buying new, we’ve compiled an expert list of top reasons why buying new, especially from Boone Homes, is the best option by far.

Low maintenance

It’s no secret that maintenance and repairs tend to be necessary on previously-owned homes, as many older houses have experienced years of wear and tear with outdated styles, materials and features. Although the cost to buy resale homes may appear to be lower, there are so many factors that are unaccounted for, especially in the repairs and maintenance categories. The majority of resale homebuyers end up paying thousands of dollars on a frequent basis for renovations, updates and replacements—and the nature of buying a used home can come with uncertainty and unpredictability. 

By buying new, you can undoubtedly help yourself save money, time and energy in the long run. Our commitment to quality is truly second to none at Boone Homes, and our homes feature top-tier appliances, materials and overall components to eliminate any uncertainties and worries. Buying new means you’re the first to park in the garage, to step foot on the floors and to cook in the kitchen. Our new appliances and systems allow for a significant amount of energy efficiency compared to older homes, and our thoughtfully-designed layouts and unparalleled features guarantee the utmost convenience, functionality and reliability. 

Personalize it to you

Invest in your future

Whether you’re paying rent or a mortgage payment on a used home, there’s always a risk of increased rent payments or having to fund repairs. It’s unreasonable to have to pay an expensive monthly rental, and unnecessary to have to put aside extra money to fix a resale home—and even still, a lot of people believe the common misconception that buying a new home is unattainable or unrealistic. The truth is, buying a new home with Boone Homes is far from either one of those things, and we make it our mission to make buying a new home a seamless, easy process.

Additionally, when you choose to buy a new home rather than rent, you’re investing in your future by increasing your financial stability—specifically in the categories of building wealth and equity, as well as better tax benefits and an overall thoughtful decision for your financial future. Eliminate the uncertainties of resale homes by buying a new home from Boone Homes—which is an extremely beneficial decision in both the present and future.
